If you caught Scarborough Country last night, you would have seen this crackpot in full froth. His name is Michael Evans and he was arguing, in a three-way with Arianna Huffington and Pat Buchanan, that the U.S. needs to attack Iran immediately. The discussion was ostensibly about Joe Lieberman's recent pronouncements on the same subject (see next item). Your first impression in watching this loon (other than he made Buchanan look rational) might have been that he was yet another American Likudist, which he is, certainly. But his dementia goes deeper than that, it turns out. You see, Evans is one of those who believe that we are soon to experience The Rapture. He believes "These are the very last of the days." No doubt, he sees nothing wrong with helping God's mysterious plan along by having the U.S. bomb Iran. Ah, the Rethug base. It's a glorious thing.
